Viewing distance

Small TVs

You can comfortably view a 24-inch TV at around six feet (1.8 metres) away, so they're great for a bedroom or kitchen, or if you don't want your television to dominate your living room.

Small TVs

If you're after a slightly larger second TV for a bedroom or kitchen, the optimum distance for a 32-inch TV is about 7 feet (2 meters).

Medium TVs

Moving into the realms of medium-sized TVs, a 40-inch set could be a good main TV if you don't want it to dominate, or an extravagant second TV. Best viewed at 9 feet (2.45 meters) away.

Medium/Large TVs

At the upper end of the 'medium' scale, modern 48-50-inch TVs are slimline enough not to appear overbearing, and could be a good choice if you typically sit around 9 feet (2.6 meters) away.

Large TVs

Thanks to modern, slimline designs with small bezels, 55-inch TVs are more popular than ever. Ideal if you've got your feet up around 11 feet (3.3 meters) away from the screen.

Extra-large TVs

If you're really pushing the boat out, or you have a large room and sit about 13 feet (3.7 meters) away from the screen, these extra-large sets have really come down in price.

Extra-large TVs

Looking to take things to the extreme? There are a handful of TVs around larger than 65-inches in size, though you'll need to be at least 14 feet (4.2 meters) away for the best experience.
